"God speaks to all people and gives us all spiritual gifts -- and yet these gifts are not all the same. We are
organizers, prayers, workers, carers, innovators, provocateurs, and healers. Why? Because we're made
to fit together like puzzle pieces, as we name, affirm, and nurture spiritual gifts and ministries. In the
author's view, this fitting together is at the heart of what it means to be a covenant people, a people given to the care
of one another and charged with building the kingdom of
God on Earth. It's easy to settle for less than covenant;
it's scary to stretch for the wholeness of God's promise.
We, collectively, face a choice of who to be." --
